Mayanita's story

Mayanita P. is from the village of Cabisera 25, Ilagan, Isabela. She is 36 years old. Mayanita is married and has 4 school-aged children. To make a living, Mayanita owns & operates a business venture in the agriculture sector raising crops. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from planting & harvesting corn for sale. Mayanita has been engaged in her business for over 11 years and earns approximately 8000 PHP a month for these activities.

In 2007, Mayanita joined ASKI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Mayanita has successfully repaid a previous loan of 25000 PHP from ASKI. This previous loan was used to purchase fertilizers such as manure. Mayanita is requesting a new loan of 29000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional seeds, seedlings & young crops to raise. This loan will be the 8th loan taken out by Mayanita from ASKI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to pay the tuition fees of the borrower's children.
